Last week, we began reading "Star Books." "Star Books" are books that we have deemed as classic childhood favorite books that have all of the important story elements. We read The Three Billy Goats Gruff and Caps for Sale last week. We read these books over and over again so that students get really familiar with them. The kids colored and cut out puppet pieces for the characters for The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Students sat with a friend and practiced retelling the story. Once everyone had the opportunity to practice retelling with their partner, we chose two students to share with the class and show them how they recalled parts of the story and tried to use character voices. They did a great job!
